Aliyah Ben-Israel

Hi! My name is Aliyah. I am prior service in the United States Army for 10 years where I was a Paralegal Specialist for five and a Surgical Technician for five. I graduate with my Associates in Dental Assisting at the University of Alaska Fairbanks in 2017. I also am Certified in Personal Training, Nutrition and Physical Therapy thru the ISSA. Throughout my life time I have never allowed myself to not achieve my goals and dreams. If I wanted to do it, I did it! I have put myself through Airborne School, Air Assault, Deep Diving Scuba Certification, Certified Life Savers Course, ASSIST Certification, CPR/First Aid Certification, National Physique Committee Qualified, Deployments and not to mention Motherhood. I enjoy spending time with my boyfriend and four beautiful children, who I want to inspire every day! My favorite quote of all time is “Life is a Garden DIG IT!” When you attack life with a smile, determination, motivation and grace there is nothing you can’t achieve!

In my off time I enjoy powerlifting, video games, and Netflix. I have competed in several body building competitions and am looking forward to competing in powerlifting this year. I enjoy the outdoors and spending quality time with family. I was born and raised here in Fairbanks, Alaska.

In the infamous words of Gary Player “The harder I work, the luckier I get”. I look forward to serving you and being able to help you achieve your life’s goals and dreams. Because everything in life starts with a smile!


Orthodontic Assistants


Amber Woodard


Hello my name is Amber. I have been a Dental assistant for a year. I got my certification through the Red Cross program for military spouses.

I am a Military spouse of 7 years and a mother of 5 amazing kids, 3 of which are step children. As a family we love to be outside as much as possible. And enjoy traveling and seeing places we haven’t seen yet. I love doing wood working and arts and crafts.

I chose Dental assisting as my career because I love to meet new people and help in any way I can. I don’t have the most perfect smile, so If I can help someone else’s smile be amazing that’s what I want to do. Plus dental assisting is perfect for the military life. It's a career I can take anywhere.
